Procedure for Public Health Data Request
Our office has various data sources in-house and we know of many more. The best way to get a sense of the data we have available is to look at our reports, in particular the Community Health Assessment.
When requesting data or information from our office, it is helpful for you to provide us with the question(s) you need answered, the form or survey you are completing, instructions and definitions you receive from external agencies or the facts or issues being addressed. We are able to provide more accurate data by knowing the question(s) and/or the public health problem.
How to make a data request
1. Complete the data request form, found here.
2. Receive a follow up email within three business days. If you do not receive a follow up email, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org

NOTE: Requests must be made by the person interested in the data. Please do not have a team-member or employee request data for you. Please allow at least 2 weeks (10 business days) for simple requests (5 or fewer metrics) and at least 1 month for more complex requests (more than 5 metrics)
